Able Seaman Course

Able Seaman Course

Did You Know?

The work can be physically demanding... enduring icy winds and cold rain on exposed decks during winter months... It can involve descending ladders and pulling ropes wearing protective gears. Working on a commercial vessel of any kind is hard work. But for the adventure at sea and an average salary of $50,421 per year, it all works out well for a young recruit.

Applicants who have successfully completed the Able Seaman (On-Line) course and present their Certificate of Training within one year of the completion of training, will satisfy:

  • The written examination requirements of 46 CFR 12.405(a) for the "Deck General and Navigation General," "Deck Safety and Rules of the Road" for any endorsement as Able Seaman.

This course does not meet any of the written examination or practical examination requirements for Lifeboatman or Marlinspike Seamanship.
